Great!

This is no doubt a publicity shot for Jo's Capitol recording session with the great Red Ingle for 'Tim-tay-shun'. Note the band includes bass player/impresario Cliffie Stone & his father 'Herman the Hermit' on banjo. Still trying to figure out who the feller is on the weird 3-neck guitar...

Probably a publicity still for Tim-Tayshun, her hillbilly version of Temptaion, in collaboration with Red Engles (his session, actually, I think), which you may hear here:

Herman the Hermit (shown on banjo) played a triple-neck guitar on the LA show Hometown Jamboree (hosted by Cliffie Stone). That's probably his instrument pictured here, but I don't know who's holding it. I was thinking maybe Billy Strange, but I'm not convinced.

Looking at a page about Hometown Jamboree, that's one solid lineup they had there.
